Ladies, Call Barney Stinson: 1-877-987-6401. (Funnier to listen here first rather than reading the transcription!) Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson in a hidden Super Bowl ad.

Surprised not to have seen this posted yet, called immediately when I saw it on the game. Much Fun!

First topic post, seemed valid enough, but apologies if it needs to be pulled off. Also, this was the only link I could find other than another forum discussing it.

I keep trying to call and I am constantly getting a busy signal!!! Argh!

Thanks for posting the transcript! It's nice to know since I can't get through.
Huh, now I'm getting a busy signal too... I wonder if It's too many people calling or if they already shut it down.
It's recorded here. Sounds like a long waiting list.
hacksaway ftw, added your link up top!
I had the most fun at my Super Bowl party when this ad aired. It seems the wife of my host had no idea that NPH was gay...and her shock ("But he's so GOOD at being a ladies' man!") was worth quite a few minutes of amusement.
A clearer version of it is here. The audio is much easier to hear.
Such a good idea. Funny times.
I just heard that it ties in directly with tonight's HIMYM
Can someone explain how people knew to call this number? I can't seem to find an commercial or whatever announcing it. I'm so confused. It's pretty good, though.
Jaymii - During the Super Bowl, there were some "crowd shots," one of which was Neil Patrick Harris as his "How I Met Your Mother" character, holding up a sign that said, essentially, C.B.S. - Call Barney Stinson (which is to say the "C," "B" and "S" were highlighted so as to let those not in the know know that it was a commercial), followed by the phone number.

Hope that helps.

I know! Whatever happened to the good old days, when romantic leads were played by real men's men, like Rock Hudson?
XanMan, cheers for that. Makes a bit more sense now. :D
